Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

BoababaGood times, big hangover

There are a couple of ways to have a vodka party – either at your place, reserving a spot at a restaurant, or reserving a bar. It is FAR cheaper to have it as a house party, and the theme possibilities are extensive. I had a “put cheap vodka through a brita filter” theme, and after 4 runs through a brita it actually tasted ok, but then again, it could have been that we were comparing each filtering run to controls of grey goose and chopin and could barely stand by that point. Or you could have an ice luge and vodka-pong competition. Just make sure you have plenty of place for people to crash afterwards, and that you’re ready to deal with massive hangovers (and perhaps some cleanup) the next day. Another note – drunk DDR is very difficult.

A good russain restaurant is more expensive. We ended up paying about 45 a person for appetisers and several different brands of vodka. The restaurant did not allow us to bring our own vodkas, so we had to stick to whatever they had, which was not a very wide ranging selection (5 different kinds). But the restaurant had a dance floor and a DJ, making for a very fun night once the people losened up. Make sure you have the travel arranged for everyone ahead of time, and that people who drive stop drinking at least 2 hours prior to driving. Also make sure that people pace each other – novices tend to get drunk fast and make unpleasant messes.

Clubs are more expensive still, costing about 300 (at a low end) to reserve a private area on a weeknight at a popular spot, and then extra for the alcohol. But if you can gather a large enough crowd, and figure out how to make them pay up, it could be as little as 50 bux a person. The advantages are that you’re not limited to mingling with just your guests, and the DJs are far better. The selection of vodkas can also be quite extensive, depending on the place.

Of course, all this is only legal for those 21 and over. Boston police have a surprisingly low tolerance for drunk underage kids. And, as a medical note, make sure that people know their limits before they start drinking. Make sure diabetics, people on antidepressants or antibiotics, and, again, anyone under 21 are NOT drinking. The consequences (including hospitalizations) are not worth the few hours of fun. Spread the shots out over a long time, and have at least a couple of designated sober people to take care of financial and other matters.

Good luck, and enjoy responsibly! 9 years ago
